Thanks to Ukraine's efforts in migration control area, the EU does not consider it a migration risk country. Petro Tsygykal, the head of the State Migration Service said that at a briefing in Kyiv. 

'Over the past year, 3,000 cases of illegal migration were reported, with 3,800 migrants crossing the border... About 500 of them came from Russia. We know that a lot of them come from this country - sometimes they arrive in Russia legally, but then cross the Ukrainian border, violating the procedure', he said.   

Tsygykal added that Russia, Algeria, Afghanistan, Vietnam and India are among those on Ukraine's migration risk countries.
